... locked ice machine. And also in this building is the laundry machines.
We decided that after dinner we would drive down and walk Front Street. Found our old favorite free parking lot and off we went :) We both just love the feel of Lahaina, and the walk was so very enjoyable. By now we were getting pretty tired. There is a 3 hour time difference here since they do not participate in the ridiculous ritual we do of changing ...
... lack of activity. This trip turned out to be the best trip in six trips we have taken since we have been in Maui. For about an hour, we followed a competition pod.

Yes, it was the best meal so far.
